This weekend I attended ceremonies to remember the fallen - those men and women who served our country. Volunteers in Rowley and Newbury took part in a service that involves placing wreaths on individual veterans' graves.
As a component of the national Wreaths Across America - Official Page Day, which now coordinates more than 2,500 events, we assembled to pay our respects and honor those no longer with us. Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization from Maine which set out in 1992 with a trailer load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers, to lay at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Thirty years later their mission - to Remember, Honor and Teach, continues to grow.
